Besharam - Movie Review

Besharam - Movie Review

Ranbir Kapoor's much awaited film Besharam was released on 2nd October in about 3600 screens in India. It was his second release this year after Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani which was a box office hit with earnings around 188 crores and hence expectations with this one is also high. 

The film stars Pallavi Sharda opposite him,along with his parents Rishi Kapoor,Nitu Kapoor sharing screen space with him first time and Javed Jaffery in lead roles and is directed by Abhinav Kashyap who made his directorial debut with Salman Khan starrer Dabangg in 2010.

1.Plot : Film is about a car mechanic cum car thief Babli who with his partner Titu steals car and feeds an orphanage in which he was also brought up. He falls for a girl Tara at first sight and tries to woo her with his besharami(shamelessness). He started improving in her love but she keeps herself away from him.One day he mistakenly stole her car and feels bad about it. In his determination to bring back her car he put himself  in trouble with the bad guy Bheem Singh for whom he works. Inspector Chulbul Pandey and constable Bulbul Pandey gets involved in this situation and helps Babli in his fight with Bheem Singh. A rowdy turning into a good guy for a girl is age-old Bollywood masala film formula which needs a different approach if presented again. This approach is there but director is not clear in his approach as film fails to establish balance between action,comedy,romance and drama.

2. Promotions : It is marketed in almost every big Indian television show along with News channels and print media. The buzz around for the film is great and it scores good marks for it.

3.Music :    Music for the film is composed by Lalit Pandit who also composed "Munni Badnam Hui" for Abhinav Kashyap's Dabangg. Lyrics are penned by Rajeev Barnwaal,Nikhat Khan and Himanshu Kishan Mehra. Except one or two songs,no other song make much impact and you tend to forget them as soon as film ends. Here this movie looses much point for the fact that music is heart of Indian films, people watch a bad movie even if music is good similarly bad music keep away the audience from the movie.

3.Casting and Direction: Ranbir can be better with character,there is not much for him to show his acting skills . Rishi and Neetu has done a worst performance of their lifetime with some cheap dialogues given to them. Pallavi has limited work to do in the movie and she is average in her role. Javed Jaffery don't fit in this negative character who is neither a serious nor a comic in performance. Direction is not up to the mark,some scenes are unnecessary and he looses his grip from the plot as film progresses.

Ranbir's fan may like the movie but it is difficult for it to break any records. It may gain as there is no big movie releasing this week. In my opinion film is below average and gets only two stars from my side.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumors?

Braid Cutting - Truth or Rumor?

Mysterious braid (choti) cutting incidents has happened in Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi where women mostly around 50 years of age has their braids cut without their knowledge by some invisible source causing fear among women in these areas. Women also fell unconscious during the time of braid cutting which left them clueless about the attacker and made the incident mysterious. Police who have recorded the statements of victims deny any black magic involved in this which is rumored in the video circulated in social media groups. They are asserting that some miscreants are behind the incident.
The video allegedly claims that a woman is on a mission to cut 1008 women braids in order to get invisibility power according to a black magic ritual. I heard this news around a month ago from someone whose relatives live in Rajasthan. The incident was not in news at that time, I denied him saying that these are rumors or acts of miscreants and I still believe miscr…

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Naive Traveler : City of Nawabs - Lucknow

Lucknow is known as The City of Nawabs the royal ruler of the city which gave it culinary & cultural identity like the way of talking I noticed while interacting with the people. The place is beautiful and has many things which can attract tourists to visit this city but I don’t find it tourist friendly as I observed in the other cities I visited like Agra,Jaipur, Dehradun,etc. As we came out of the station, there were no tourist autos or taxis available for city sightseeing thus left you unaware of what to do.
If we haven’t researched about the places and things to eat we couldn’t explore the city the way we did.

With our knowledge of places to visit and to eat, we first hire a bus bust to the Chowk area where we found Rahim’s Hotel for famous RAHIM KI NIHARI-KULCHA. Nihari is a breakfast non-vegetarian dish available in both Buffalo & Goat meat. Its taste was totally different from what I have tested it in Delhi and the Kulcha was he…
